Tataky de lomo de buey con enoquis (Tataki of beef tenderloin with enoki mushrooms), as served as part of the menú degustación at Goliard.
Goliard in Vila de Gràcia is currently one of my favourite restaurants for both lunch and dinner
Here are 10 good reasons why:
Espardenyes are sea slugs, sometimes referred to as sea cucumbers, found only on the Catalan coast. Similar creatures can also be found in the sea around the Balearics and off the coast of Cádiz. They are highly prized (and highly priced) delicacies.
You may see them when visiting fish stalls in the Boqueria market, though I only know of one stall which sells them. They’ll cost between 120€ and 150€ per kilo.
Finding them in restaurants and bars is a bit trickier.
Somodó, in Gràcia, which serves MediterrAsian cuisine, is one of my favourite restaurants for a special evening meal.
Here are seven photos which should help explain why.
Because they are good and tasty, and it’s fun.
Slugs and flowers? Why not? Protein and fibre like you’ve never tasted before.
